Delighted to announce I won a first and 2nd place at recent Naul Flower Club’s Horticultural and Flower Show .
One category was petite, title ‘Beauty Within ‘. A petite exhibit is only 25cms wide and high so it’s a bit of a challenge to produce an exhibit which contains all the elements and principles of design . I decided to do a traditional triangle . As you can see material used is quite small. I have done smaller as there is also a category called minature . Now that is really difficult.
Will post the first place exhibit when I recei
The Leaving Cert is over and congratulations to you all. Now it is time to prepare for your Debs.
I design coursages that are different from the traditional orchid. I use smaller more robust flowers that won’t get damaged as you dance the night away . Prices start from 20 Euro.
The ‘Daisy ‘ coursage was designed for a bride but is equally suitable for a Debs, it is fresh simple and elegant.
Rosebuds and Alstromeria which hug your wrist . Both available in the right colour to complement your dress.

The ‘Alice’ bouquet’s focal flowers are Avalanche and Aqua roses . The Bridal Spirea , Genista and Euphorbia Robbiae, which I grow myself , are soft ,flowing flowers . Blue muscari , a spring flower , allows the pink to shine and would be perfect to coordinate with a bridesmaids dress in the same blue . Muscari is a woodland flower which I also grow in my garden .
It is a light and delicate design which complemented the bride’s fairytale lace dress.
The base structure is made of coils of twine covered wire. More coils are inserted into the main design .
A beautiful and different bouquet

Thought I would show you a few atmospheric images of the forest. It was such a beautifull day. Sun was shining and many shadows and dappled sunshine . Which gave Claire a few problems , but I loved it . There is something about a forest. Its ethereal. Definition of ethereal is . ” extremely delicate and light in a way that seems not to be of this world” Harry’s video really captures the atmosphere of the forest .
